Luckovich: Potus "The Kitten Savior"

Art Of The Fail.


Sarah, maybe ask your dad WHY you get kicked out of restaurants???


Apple doesn't fall far from the tree

Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so

Mexican airline pledges to reunite immigrant families separated by Trump policy for free

The Mexico-based Volaris Airlines says it will reunite migrant families separated by the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” policy free of charge.

Volaris, also known as Controladora Vuela Cia de Aviacion, said it plans to work with “the authorities of the United States, Mexico and the countries where it operates in Central America” to reunite migrant children who were separated from their families as a result of the controversial immigration policy in a tweet Friday.


Support For Trump's Impeachment Is Higher Than His Approval Rating


President Donald Trump is a mere 1 percentage point away from former commander in chief Richard Nixon when it comes to the number of Americans who want him impeached, according to a new poll released Friday.

A wide-ranging SRSS poll conducted for CNN touched on a number of topics, including Trump’s handling of the investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election, and whether or not the president should testify before special counsel Robert Mueller.

But the question of impeachment stood out most, especially vis-à-vis the only president who ever resigned: Nixon.

Forty-two percent of those polled answered that Trump “should be impeached,” compared to 51 percent who answered they “don’t feel that way” and 7 percent who registered no opinion.

Five months before Nixon would eventually leave office in disgrace over the Watergate scandal, 43 percent of Americans thought he should be impeached, per a poll from March 1974, CNN reported.

The current poll also reflected a 39 percent approval rating for Trump, his lowest mark in the SRSS poll since February, when it was 35 percent. Results from March and May were far stronger, at 42 and 41 percent, respectively.


Fearing bad PR-WH & EPA tried to suppress "Unsafe drinking water at 126 military bases in US"

Fearing bad PR, the White House and EPA tried to suppress a report that American troops and their families were potentially drinking unsafe drinking water at 126 military bases throughout the U.S.

The Military Drinking-Water Crisis the White House Tried to Hide
A new, previously suppressed report has grave implications for service members, veterans, and their families.
June 21, 2018
The Trump administration feared it would be a “public relations nightmare”: a major federal study that concluded contaminated groundwater across the country, especially near military bases, was more toxic than the government realized. Political aides to President Donald Trump and Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt pressured the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry against releasing the results.

Peace Officers“The public, media, and Congressional reaction to these numbers is going to be huge,” an unidentified White House aide wrote, according to Politico. “The impact to EPA and [the Defense Department] is going to be extremely painful. We cannot seem to get ATSDR to realize the potential public relations nightmare this is going to be.” The study was not released.

That is, until Wednesday. Amid a media firestorm about the administration’s immigration policy, the ATSDR—a division of the Department of Health and Human Services—quietly published its 852-page review of perfluoroalkyls, or PFAS, which are “used in everything from carpets and frying pan coatings to military firefighting foams,” according to ProPublica. “All told, the report offers the most comprehensive gathering of information on the effects of these chemicals today, and suggests they’re far more dangerous than previously thought.”

These chemical compounds pose health risks to millions of Americans. They’re in roughly 1 percent of the nation’s public water supply, according to the EPA; in roughly 1,500 drinking water systems across the country, according to the Environmental Working Group. People who drink from these systems, even if their exposure to PFAS is low, now have a potentially increased risk of cancer; of disruptions in hormones and the immune system; and of complications with fetal development during pregnancy.
